….. people will have a stroke within a week after a TIA. The main difference between a TIA and a stroke is that the blockage in a TIA will often move or break up on its own, resulting in a return of normal blood flow to the brain.

FACE Is their face drooping on one side? Can the person smile?
ARM Is one arm weak? Can the person raise both arms?
SPEECH Is their speech jumbled or slurred? Can the person speak at all?
TAKE ACTION Call 111 straight away, DO NOT DELAY.

Stroke Association NZ recommends, “If any of the signs of stroke are recognised, don’t wait, call 111 straight away. Don’t call your doctor, or drive yourself – get help immediately. Ambulance staff want to hear from you if you recognise the F.A.S.T. signs – call 111 and tell them it’s a stroke.”.

Tomorrow we will look at a TIA.
